Womens Retreat

Some of you know that since August, I have been dreaming, praying, and stressing about the Florida Regional Women's Retreat that I was the Director of. The retreat was this past weekend and it went so well. God blessed us with safety, a great speaker, precious girls, sweet tshirts and an uplifting time. 65 girls from all over Florida joined us here in Gainesville for friday night and saturday day. We enjoyed hearing from a godly woman Debbie Friley who shared what it meant and looked like to be set free by knowing the Truth. My favorite part was tea time, in which girls got to dress up and drink tea with each other while getting to talk with older women. Ahh it was so good.

Here are some of the pics. These women are from my campus, UF.
And this is a our big group. The faces are so little, but look how joyous everyone looks. You can tell they were all just at a sweet retreat.
Thanks to those who prayed for this little retreat. And for those who had to deal with my frazzeledness during the planning. My husband is glad to have clean clothes and food in the house now that I have had time to grocery shop and clean our underwear! Ha.
